Whether you’re building a new home or renovating, we’re sure you’ve seen the deluge of DIY products that keep popping up everywhere. Maybe you’ve investigated some of these big-box products yourself and weighed the pros and cons of going it alone versus enlisting expert help. We suggest leaving those packaged “solutions” on the shelf.
Instead, we at DeVance Electronic Lifestyle highly recommend a pro smart home automation installation for several reasons, three of which we’ll cover today. Curious to see why? We’ll reveal more in this article.
Before we start your installation project, we sit down with you and discuss any individual preferences you might have. That conversation feels open ended and leads us to dozens of possibilities informing everything from your design preferences to your family’s control needs.
For example, maybe you’ve worked with your interior designer to find contemporary lighting fixtures that we can integrate with a control system. Or perhaps you need to synch voice control to your automation so that your elderly family member doesn’t have to locate a remote or control panel to adjust lighting and climate settings.
We’ll talk you through every detail, such as where you need your multi-room music, your preferred lighting schedule, ideal security camera locations, etc. Then, we’ll draw up a custom-built system that implements everything that matters to you. We even look at your wiring to make sure it can support the updates you desire.
Can a DIY product do that? Most of these in-store products are targeted to the broadest possible audience, which leaves out anything that could make your home unique. Starting with that disadvantage impacts every consequent step, as you’ll see below.
DIY solutions don’t allow you for many tweaks during the installation, either. One notable example? Many people prefer hard-wired security or multi-room audio for their noted quality differences. However, DIY solutions are all wireless, leaving you without that option.
Even so, some “wireless” products aren’t as simple as they look, such as speakers, which still need a connection to a power system and amplifier. Also, do-it-yourself lighting control still requires some electrical wiring know-how. If you’re not comfortable with this process and accidentally damage a wall, there’s no one to help you fix it.
Don’t let the scenario we just described ever happen to you! If you ever have questions about how to use the devices or systems we install, how to get product updates, connect new technology or anything at all, the DeVance team is standing by to help.
